Today is Friday, February 28th, 2020; Karen's Korner #4160
Many of us know this familiar Psalm:
"The Lord is My Shepherd,
I shall not want."
~ Psalm 23:1 (KJV)
That is the King James Version.
The Living Bible translation says of the same verse:
"Because the Lord is My Shepherd,
I have everything I need."
~ Psalm 23:1 (LAB)
How many more wants do we have than are our true needs?
Do you think that God's desire for us as His Children is to bring all of our wants and needs to Him? He may not give us all of our wants, because some of them might not be good for us? Or maybe nothing we really need? He knows which are which. We don't always know what our hearts desires really are or what is good for us. Maybe that is why we call Him: 'Father'. 'Savior'. 'Friend'.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can ask you for everything and anything. Thank You that You give us what we truly need! Help us to praise You when we pray, not always knowing the outcome. You have our best in mind. Always! In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen.
